Diabetes is a serious health problem today. It is the single most important metabolic disease. It can affect nearly every organ system in the body. Diabetics find difficulty to observe a healthy lifestyle in their diets and eating patterns. Treatment of a diabetic requires a strict regimen that typically includes carefully calculated and controlled diet. Type-2 diabetes is becoming more common due to risk factors such as older age, obesity, lack of exercise, family history of diabetes, and heart diseases. Most of the people are unaware that they are at risk of or may even have type-2 diabetes.
